Shareholder Brad Friedel Named to US Soccer Hall of Fame

Orlando, FL (May 31, 2018) – Brad Friedel, a shareholder of the football co., a division of Sputnik Enterprises, Inc., today was named to the US Soccer Hall of Fame.

Friedel was among the players on the ballot for the first time. He joins Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber, Cindy Parlow Cone, Bob Contiguglia and Tiffeny Milbret among the inductees to be revealed throughout the day. Friedel made 82 appearances for the United States over 13 years and was on the national team’s roster for three World Cups, starting for the American team that advanced to the quarterfinals in 2002. His club career was highlighted by 17 Premier League seasons, including stints with the Blackburn, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Tottenham. He was hired as coach of the New England Revolution in November. Friedel most recently served as coach of the U.S. under-19 national team and was a Fox analyst.

“We are delighted for Brad to be named as a 2018 inductee of the US Soccer Hall of Fame. Brad’s storied career between the US Men’s National Team, multiple global iconic clubs and 668 EPL career appearances of which 310 were consecutive matches is well known. With his new career coaching recently with US Soccer and now with MLS’ New England Revolution in addition to working as a TV analyst, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight any time soon. We wish Brad continued success,” said Anthony Gebbia, CEO of the football co.
